DINGHY RIG UPGRADES, OPTIONS, AND ACCESSORIES

UPGRADES

SailboatsToGo offers substitutions of selected standard components. Consider buying these upgrades while you are making a purchase of a sail rig or related component from us.  Upgrade prices reflect a credit for deleting the standard version of the component and you pay just price difference between the standard and the higher cost component.   You may also want to check out the deluxe  package versions of our products. The deluxe versions include popular upgrades at a discounted price.   A little farther down the page are options and accessories not involving a substitution, but rather just an add-on of something to enhance your sailboat.

Please note: Upgrades are substitutions for standard components and can only be purchased at the upgrade price with a sail rig or the standard component being upgraded.

HEAVY DUTY MAST UPGRADE

Stronger, taller mast.  This is included if you upgrade to the larger sail.  But even if you get the standard 45 SF sail, you can benefit from this upgrade. The taller mast gives you more headroom under the boom.  It's greater strength gives you peace of mind that you have the strongest mast in case you are ever caught out in a sudden storm.  And if you ever decide to upgrade to the larger 55 SF sail, this is the mast you will need.

   CENTER RUDDER INSTEAD OF    SIDE STEERING OAR SYSTEM

We like the steering oar steering system, but for kids,  smaller adults or traditionalists the traditional center rudder may be preferable.  

Rudder steering:  Takes less arm effort in high wind, but you have to sit to the side to make room for the tiller, and you have to have forward motion to have steering control.  

Steering Oar steering: Is on the side, so you can sit centered, and forward motion is not required to steer with it.

OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES

Outfit your rig with these extras to make sailing even more of a breeze!

SECOND STEERING OAR & OARPIN

Your sail kit has a steering oar socket on each side, but only one steering oar comes with the sail kit. It’s generally more comfortable to steer with the oar on the downwind side.  With 2 steering oars,  you simply switch hands whenever you want, letting the other oar trail behind freely.  This saves having to move the oar to the socket on the other side. (Also; Mariner and Solstice boats can use the steering oars in the regular rowing oarlocks to row the boat, in place of the light-duty short oars the boat maker provides.)

CARRY BAG 

Big enough for the sail rig and more. Strong fabric and strong zipper.  

More Info

SLIP-ON WHEELS

Once you get these you'll wonder how you got along without them.  Wheels on legs slip quickly and easily into the front crossbar of your sail kit and turn your boat into a wheelbarrow!  Okay to submerge them.   Light and compact enough to stow in the boat while sailing.  Or, bring a cable and padlock and lock them to a tree while you are on the water!

Electric motor, battery, charger, and power meter to power your dinghy when the winds won’t.

CLAMPS TO SAIL WITH MOTOR MOUNT

Motor mounts use the same fittings we use for normal attachment of the steering oar unit. These clamps enable both to be used at the same time. 

More Info

CLAMP-ON RUDDER FOR ZODIAC TYPE RIG

Adding this to your cart adds the rudder and does not replace the steering oar and crossbar if you are ordering a sail kit.
